Shipwreck and Maritime Museum

The Shipwreck and Maritime Museum in Arreton contains many fascinating artefacts such as a 67 year old jar of rum, which have been recovered from numerous ship wrecks, including that of the U81, a German submarine which was sunk off the Island in 1917. The museum also includes exhibits on HMS Swordfish which sank after hitting a mine near St. Catherine's Point in 1940. Other exhibits include a collection of ship models and a display of Siebe Gorman "Standard" or "Hard-Hat" diving equipment.
